The inaugural edition of UAE's International League T20 has been one to be watched out for; teams have shown top-flight prowess, which has been one reason why the league has gotten where it has reached.

The games have come thick and fast in this league, and the 22nd match is between Abu Dhabi Knight Riders and Dubai Capitals at Abu Dhabi's home ground on Monday. The former team has shown much play thus far, while the Capitals are also crawling low on the points table; this clash will be an enthralling affair.

Under Sunil Narine's leadership, the Abu Dhabi team have failed miserably, losing six successive games. They have not won a single yet in the season, but a team having game-changers like Andre Russell, Narine, Charith Asalanka, Paul Stirling, et al. can spoil any party.

On the other hand, the Capitals have had a topsy turfy tournament thus far. Captain Rovman Powell, Robin Uthappa and Joe Root have done exceptionally well for them, but they would need wins heading towards the business end.
